Please post any and all discussions regarding the contest itself, host country and city, organisation, rumours and other topics not related to any specific country's selection process.
Who and what are you even talking about? Also if you're a true ESC fan you should know the contest has always been political at some degree so for you to whine now is just pathetic. Nothing is ''rigged''It'll be funny if he beats the ukraine... Then I'll never watch eurosong again... It's definitely going to be all rigged and politically carved
You're highWell, then it's not even a music competition. It's political If it wasn't set up, you'd see text voices coming in on the big screen This way they can rig the vote any way they want... It's not about who's a eurosong fan. It's who thinks for themselves unlike most who believe we're not rigged
After the grand final on saturday they will release the full breakdown of both the televoters and juries for each semi finalWell, then it's not even a music competition.

SBS explains that:
Eurovision’s official voting partner Digame in Germany has created a new online voting platform, exclusively for Australia’s public Eurovision vote. This means there will be no SMS or Televoting in Australia during the live shows. All of Australia’s public votes will be received via the new online system.
The voting portal will be accessed via www.esc.vote, hosted by Digame. Votes will be limited to 20 per person and will cost 55c per vote.
You will be able to select which acts you want to vote for and how many votes per act (up to 20 votes total). How you allocate those votes is up to you: you could allocate 20 votes to one act, divide your votes between multiple acts, or just make one vote for your favourite.
Payment options are Google Pay, Apple Pay or Credit Card. Once payment has been received no more votes can be taken from that user. Full voting terms and conditions will be available on the voting platform.
I often wondered how the Sammarinese televoting worked, that's absolutely scandalous lolEBU allows to let an online voting replace entire the televoting!
I repeat: There will be NO TELEVOTING for Australia this year!
Actually, I think that this is utterly outrageous and a punch in the face of which has to deal with "fake, randomly calculated televoting points [a combination of Albania, Cyprus, Greece and maybe Italian votes]".
Australia will be the first country in the history of Eurovision to use online voting to determine the results of the public vote.eurovoix.com
They will obviously extend the contract thoughI often wondered how the Sammarinese televoting worked, that's absolutely scandalous lol
Australia's contract is up in 2023 so maybe the EBU are just happy to let them do that because they may not extend? They're not exactly televote popular anymore...
